United And Arsenal Prepare To Bid For Sterling

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has admitted that talks have stalled over Raheem Sterling’s contract with the club, paving the way for interest from Manchester United and Arsenal.

Sterling, who is valued at £15million, made his England debut against Sweden this year and if he were to move to United he would be the first player to move from Liverpool for nearly 50 years.

Former United winger Willie Morgan advised Sir Alex Ferguson to sign Sterling earlier this week and reports suggest that United, Arsenal and Manchester City are interested in the 18-year-old. He told the Manchester Evening News:

‘I think United should attempt to buy Liverpool’s left winger Raheem Sterling.

‘Sterling is the first winger I have seen in a long time who looks like a proper winger. He looks very good already and I think he is going to be great.

‘If you just let him go wide on the outside of the full-backs all the time I think he will be a great player. He’ll frighten people to death, so long as nobody coaches it out of him. He’s the brightest prospect out there and would suit United.’
